母亲节

分类: 学英文
    This Sunday is Mother's Day.
    Families may try to still mom's busy hands by serving her a homemade breakfast in bed or taking her to a nice restaurant for brunch. They will shower her with cards, flowers, and presents in an attempt to say "thank you" for all the hours she has labored over them.
    It does not matter whether she is a business executive, an hourly laborer,
or an unpaid stay-at-home mom---the best mothers invest the best of themselves in their families. They may spend many hours at work, but they still manage to make their children feel loved, to make each house a home, and to create and sustain the traditions and customs that make each family unique. They set high standards and higher expectations. They glory in our successes and console us in our defeats. Like ripples in a pond, their investment spreads across the generations.
    It is up to us to live up to our mother's expectations, to be the kind of adults she always believed we could be. And if we simply try our best, she will consider the return on her investment to be well met.
 
    这个星期天是母亲节。
    家庭成员们会停下母亲忙碌的双手,为她准备一份自制的早餐在床上享用,或是带她去一家高档餐馆吃早午餐。他们会赠送许多卡片、鲜花和礼物来答谢母亲在他们身上所花的心血。
  无论母亲是一名商业管理者、固定时薪的工人、还是没有收入的家庭主妇--最好的母亲都为自己的家庭倾注了所有。他们会在工作上花很多的时间,但她们仍然能够让孩子感觉到爱,制造温暖的家庭环境,创造和维持传统习惯来突显每个家庭的个性。她们设立高标准和更高的期望。我们的成功有她们的一份荣耀,我们的失败也有她们的一份慰藉。她们所倾注的爱就像河塘的涟漪,一圈圈扩散,泽及后人。
  我们不能辜负母亲的期望,我们要成长为她一直以来相信我们应当成为的人。只要我们尽了全力,她就会感到自己的付出终有回报。
